Push On Feat. Anthony Hamilton (Explicit) - Nappy Roots

This is for you, and you, and you, and you

 

Now I came up with little bad ass yeagas,

to never had ass yeagas

Slept and ate with our peeps

but we let the streets raise us

Kept the weed blazin',

don't let the drink age us

Used to live outrageous,

now we just couch potatoes

Without the wages, to break

out the project cages

Make do with what we got,

use the logic that God gave us

Losin' faith is enough to make a man crazy

Can't even pay my landlady

How the fuck I'm 'posed to

save for my unplanned baby?

Joined the Navy and my uncle sayin', "Pay me"

Maybe I'm just too damn lazy

but you can page me

Lately, been hustlin' grams daily

Holdin' down my spot on

the corner like Champ Bailey

But I know I ain't the only one,

you feel me?

On the gun livin' on the run,

look how they done momma's only son

X me out like I'm, a Roman numeral

Damn and ain't tryin' to see me again,

till my funeral

For so long I been grindin'

Paid this my dues, put my time in

Time in even went down for tryin',

I pushed on

 

Never once did I give up

Every time I fell I would get up

Always kept my spirit up, I pushed on

 

Now we finally feelin' plush

Doin' gotta do to keep our nails airbrushed

Jade straight out the box,

damn ne'er been touched

Damn I'm feelin' good, B lined me up

Till we never seen a Pontiac diamond-toed

 

Nappy Roots, what it mean to ya?

Mines and us

And don't be callin' us slow,

we ain't grind it up

Now my people all smiles

'cause we out the slums

Sayin', "Look at Big Bud ol' sloppy drunk

I remember when he

sold tapes out the trunk

Now here's the routine jump out the truck

T-shirt and blue jeans

'94 Jays blue shoe strings

When I first hit the grind ain't stop for shit

And my only motivation was a pot to piss

See it hit me so hard ain't

have a penny to myself

I swallowed up my pride and

asked Skinny for some help

And I'm sayin'

For so long I been grindin'

Paid this my dues, put my time in

Time in even went down for tryin',

I pushed on

 

Never once did I give up

Every time I fell I would get up

 

Always kept my spirit up, I pushed on

 

Want me to stop,

I did but I couldn't stop the shit

Dawg I cried for this, stole and lied for this

Scream when I felt this shit

Toured for 16 months straight,

lost breath for this

Heh, yelled for this

Sinnin' every night, know

I'm goin' to hell for this

The hurt and the betrayal,

compelled by this

Tough wall to climb but

Nappy Roots scaled the shit

Just don't let me rap in vain,

people pray over this

Don't take my word for it,

see for yourself and shit

Everybody out in the wind,

ain't no help with this

I coulda thrown in the towel,

coulda walked away

Eyes on the prize, so I'm strong today

Simply want it, believe it, think it, breathe it

Chase it, cease it, maintain, keep it

Hold it, control it, never let go of it

Hold on, press on, push on, I'm gone

 

For so long I been grindin'

Paid this my dues, put my time in

Time in even went down for tryin',

I pushed on

 

Never once did I give up

Every time I fell I would get up

Always kept my spirit up, I pushed on

 

For so long I been grindin'

Paid this my dues, put my time in

Time in even went down for tryin',

I pushed on

 

Never once did I give up

Every time I fell I would get up

Always kept my spirit up, I pushed on

 

For so long paid my dues, now I

I pushed on

 

Alright, give up

 

I pushed on

I never have, kept on
